Recovery Ranch - Structured Sober Living for Men is proud to announce it has expanded its services to include a program for teenage boys.

The program will offer all the same services and structure of its residential program for men while giving teenagers the ability to continue their education in completing their requirements for their high school diploma.

The program will be overseen and run by graduate house managers of the men’s program.

The program components of Recovery Ranch Youth will mirror those of its adult program in being based on structure and accountability.

Residents will be held accountable to living the 12 Steps, and along with maintaining a high standard of living they develop a strong sense of work ethic, learn to live in gratitude and lead their lives with selflessness.

Teens will build relationships and develop a support system, while living as gentlemen in recovery. 

For program information, contact Jared Erb, intake manager and house director, at 805.705.0766 or [email protected].

Mark Sabens is the office director at Recovery Ranch.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
